In order to fully authenticate a birth certificate, it is often important to legally notarize the original certificate. The first thing that you should do when you need a certified copy of a birth certificate is to contact the state agency (Vital Statistics Agency) that issues birth certificates and request that a new one be sent to you. You will then need to pay the applicable fees associated with receiving a certified copy of the birth certificate. You can also notarize the copy personally by contacting a Texas Mobile Notary to witness the document and use their notary seal on it.


A notary is a person who helps prevent document fraud. Usually appointed by the government of his or her state or locality, a notary applies a seal to documents as proof that he or she has witnessed the signature on it. He or she is also responsible for evaluating whether the identification the signer provides is legitimate, making sure the signature wasn’t coerced and sometimes even administering oaths. While you can visit a notary’s place of business for document notarization, you don’t have to. A mobile notary company will come to your location to provide the notary services you need. A Notary Signing Agent is a Professional Notary that is usually background screened and certified to handle the notarization and field closing functions for  mortgage related documents. This type of certification also make them an excellent choice when handling your more complex legal documents. Notaries are not usually attorneys, if they are not, they are not allowed to explain documents to you or give you legal advice. However, it is their job to identify the documents for you, show you where to sign, notarize and give the document back to the party who hired them.

It will be necessary to get a car title notarized if you are selling a car and transferring the title to someone else or if you are registering a car for yourself. In order to get a car title notarized, you will need to find a notary public. In some states, they work right at the department of motor vehicles. Otherwise, you can find a notary public at banks, courthouses, post offices, law offices, or any location where legal documents are processed or signed. There are also some small businesses that offer many of the services motor vehicle departments provide.
